Morning Greatness: Rochester Police Department Command Staff Taps Out

Good Wednesday morning:

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president receives his intelligence briefing
  • Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany holds a press conference

Five minutes of hate:

The entire Rochester police department command staff has quit. Rioters/BLMers have been destroying the city and harassing randos on the streets and in restaurants after the death of Daniel Prude who died while police tried to restrain him. Police put a spit hood on Prude because, while he was having a naked break down in the street, he said he had covid-19 and was spitting on them. He also had PCP in his system. The medical examiner ruled as the cause of death, “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint, excited delirium [and] acute phencyclidine [PCP] intoxication.” The Mayor announced at a City Council meeting on Tuesday that “the entire Rochester Police Department’s command staff has announced their retirement.”

In a public statement, Chief La’Ron Singletary, a 20-year veteran of the police force called out  “mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death.”

“As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character,” the statement said. “The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity.” Two out of the three people leaving are black; Singletary is black as is Mark Simmons, so I guess yay? If there’s anyone left out there that thinks the BLM movement is really about black lives, remember the black Seattle police chief also quit her job.

An ACLU staffer is mad that Nick Sandmann was admitted to Transylvania University, calling it a “stain” on the school.

“Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman [sic]? I’m sure it’s a “both sides” defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue,” ACLU’s Samuel Crankshaw said in a Facebook post. The post has been taken down. Sandmann was the young teen who was accosted by a “Native American activist” when he came to town to attend the March for Life. The “activist” along with the media smeared Sandmann, running story after story that the Catholic school teen aggressively taunted the Native American agitator. If you thought the ACLU was about civil liberties I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Someone named Avery Tompkins who is an assistant professor at Transylvania University and a “diversity scholar” (LOL) called Sandmann’s “public behavior and rhetoric atrocious and uninformed.” As opposed to say, Tompkins who is unaware of the facts surrounding Sandmann’s ritual defamation.

“We can’t not admit academically qualified students due to their political and personal views,” Avery said. “If he ends up in my Intro class, fine. He might learn something that is actually based on research and evidence.”

“If he were to cause problems by being disruptive, trolling, or engaging in unethical behavior of any kind, I would immediately document it (just like I would for any student doing the same thing)…and he would just be putting himself in a position for me to file a conduct report.”

I doubt Mr. Sandmann would disrupt or troll your class because he’s not a rude, ill-mannered brat like so many of your leftists comrades are.

Neither of these clowns must have gotten word about the CNN and Washington Post settlements after Sandmann sued them for their lies.
